Shanghai (Gasgoo)- In recent days, Sitech Electric Motor, a Chinese EV startup based in Guizhou Province, announced its global strategic deployment and also unveiled its brand at CES 2018. Besides, Sitech launched its logo and Silicon Valley Branch on Jan. 11. The signing ceremony of its strategic cooperation with world-renowned companies also be held during the event.

Backed and founded by Guian New District Development and Investment Co., Ltd., the Guian-based electric motor financed by a total investment of RMB 250 billion aims to be an all-ecological service provider of design, R&D and manufacturing for intelligent electric vehicles.

Sitech not only focuses on the R&D of cutting-edge vehicle design, but also attaches importance to intelligent connected vehicles and ecology of sharing finance, etc. Sitech believes that mobility tool is not just a tool of transportation in the future but also a new ecology integrated with autonomous driving and connected vehicles.

Sitech enjoys global resources in product R&D. In America, its R&D center of connected vehicles and intelligent driving is based in the Silicon Valley. Its style design center is in Europe. In China, its vehicle R&D center locates in Hangzhou, Beijing is its capital and brand center. Its Guian headquarters will take charge of manufacturing.

Sitech Electric Motor is researching and developing DEV (D means Data, E means Electric and V means Vehicle). Sitech is so forward-looking that it integrated its electric vehicle products with big data even at the early period of R&D.

From 2018 to 2021, Sitech intends to release one new model annually, positioning from small-size to large-size models. In terms of design, it will provide personalized services to meet the increasingly diversified demands of customers.

Sitech has made several explorations and efforts to cooperate with other companies and even dictricts, such as FAW, Mobike and Guian New Area. Partnering with FAW, Sitech will set up Sitech Research Institute (Global). They will also jointly research and develop first mass-produced Sitech DEV1, which is expected to achieve mass-production in December. The DEV1 will be unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show 2018, during which, their detailed cooperation plan will also be announced.

Re: Sitech DEV1

Details about the car, its technicals, the on-board D-OS interactive smart suite that controls and is aware of everything, marketing plans, and the company in general. Bookings have opened for a limited number of cars.

http://www.sohu.com/a/228845844_742622

The company, owned by different arms of the Gui'an New Area administration (it is state-owned), has a 5-year cooperation agreement with FAW. In the initial phases, the car will be produced in Changchun by FAW while Sitech's own base is under construction (also there is the little matter of the license).

Note China FAW script on rear left:



P.S.: The 250 billion RMB investment mentioned in the Gasgoo article above (post #1) is incorrect and absurd. The total investment is to the tune of 7 billion RMB.

Sitech Qineng GEV1

The Qineng GEV1 (启能 GEV1) is a variant of the DEV1 which showed up on MIIT's Notice 318 in March. The car has modified front and rear bumpers, so the length has gone up by 1 cm. Now some more info has been published, which shows that there are no changes in motor, battery, or performance. Range is 305 km.

Sitech DEV Lite

A lower-cost version of the DEV1, with a range of only 150 km compared to the DEV1's 305 km. This will not enjoy subsidies; however, Sitech claims it can still be sold for around 60,000 RMB and cars like these will encourage people to opt for modern yet affordable new energy vehicles despite the gradual phaseout of subsidies.

Even as Sitech joined hands with Icona for car designing, engineering, and prototyping, the company has decided not to go ahead (or at least go slow) with its own plant in the Gui'an New Area (comprising parts of Guizhou+Anshun). A trial workshop and temporary office had been built at the site, but reportedly these have been closed at the end of 2018. Sitech feels its cooperation with FAW Car Co. is progressing well, and capacity is adequate to continue with consigned production at FAW (the agreement had been for five years anyway). Sitech has not elaborated on its plans for a second proposed plant site in Changshou dt., Chongqing.

Sitech MEV 100

MEV 100 unveiled.

Sitech announced the creation of a model line called "Tongchuan" (同创) series which will apparently include budget vehicles, presumably those produced/developed in partnership with the likes of FAW such as the DEV1, GEV1 or MEV 100. At the premium end will be high-tech Gyon vehicles (if that project with Gaffoglio at all goes anywhere). Additionally, with Icona, Sitech is working to introduce another series of affordable "intelligent" cars under the 'AEV' program.

Sitech AEV

Lingbox (Lingbao) will supply its BOX model to Sitech on OEM basis, to be sold as Sitech "AEV" or "AEV S". Of note, the BOX is already being produced for Kandi as "EVBox" or "K27".

As we have discovered a few days ago, Sitech has also inked deals with JMEV to get two of the latter's models for sales under its brand.

Sitech Qineng GEV1

This one looks just like the regular DEV1. I don't see any of the changes (new bumpers, dark-colored trim up front) implemented on this car.
